I believe you could improve the overall look of the tank with just a little tweaking.
Give the following some thought, and give it a try if it seems to appeal to you:
The idea is to create a little more open space at the tank center to offset well-planted ends & add a touch more dramatic appearance.
- First, it looks like the plant(s) at the extreme right side is/are some type of Hygrophila, as is the plant immediately to the left of that - at the rear. Remove the portion that is immediately left of the main plant body, and then bunch up, &/or trim/prune the larger plant, leaving some room in front of it.
- Relocate the darker green middle plant on the left side (the smaller plant in the middle) to just in front of the previously mentioned Hygro.
- Move the large middle plant slightly closer to the left side, nearer the plant at far left.
- This should result in a more exposed open area in the center of the tank.
Then you could perhaps consider adding another modest-sized chunk of different driftwood on top of the existing piece to create a somewhat more dramatic, natural effect.
Give it some thought.
